Not everyone must have a college degree and not everyone can be an architect

I have decided for a brief moment to move away from enterprise architecture and transfer into the field of solution architecture. Why? It is common to misunderstand not only the role of an enterprise architect but also the role of a solution architect.  People who fill these two roles must closely cooperate with each other. That is why, it is necessary to understand mutual responsibilities.

Seven basic guidelines for the enterprise architect

Guideline 1. Don’t create architectures for the sake of creating

Even if you have the best architectural idea don’t sacrifice more time than the situation demands.  If you don’t find a strongly anchored representative in the organization, who can finance the idea and convince a broader group of people, abandon any further activities.  But make sure that the idea gets through to the organization. When the time is right, somebody will hopefully come back to it.
